The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) has applied for funding through a Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity, or RAISE grant from the federal government.
The Sheridan County Commission, at their recent regular meeting, ratified a Letter of Support for the grant application.
While appearing on Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse program, SC Commissioner Lonnie Wright gave some details surrounding the reason for the letter.
Addressed to the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg, the letter of support is assisting a WYDOT request for funding which will pay for the US87/WYO335/Coffeen Avenue project.
Wright explained the project’s goal.
According to Wright, residents can already find evidence of the preparation work for the project that will widen the roadway.
The project will also improve bicyclist and pedestrian access by extending the existing pathway south of Sheridan College, connecting neighborhoods on the city’s south side to the city’s pathway system.
